GADSBY/WESTWOODS NEWS — Sunshine and warm temperatures help shorten the winter, as does birthday parties and anniversary celebrations.

Happy birthday to Evelyn Miller who turned 60 on Sunday, Jan. 22. A surprise birthday party was held in Calgary with family members gathered, Sister Marie Vance being one of them.

Bill and Joyce Hansel, along with Lois Garland, Joe and Maxine Hansel met at the home of Gordie and Shirley Reynolds to help them celebrate their 59th wedding anniversary on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Then on Wednesday, Jan. 25 the same group met at Joe and Maxine Hansel’s to help them celebrate their 61st wedding anniversary. Many happy returns to both couples! Bill and Joyce, with birthday cake in hand, headed over to Musgroves on Friday, Jan. 27 to celebrate 11-year-old Grant Musgrove’s birthday.

On Thursday, Jan. 26, the Gadsby/Botha students enjoyed a one-day ski trip to Alliance Ski Hill.

Shane and Nadine Lang and family took in the Junior Forest Warden Winter Camp Evergreen near Sundre. The kids enjoyed the obstacle courses and rock climbing, all with safety lines attached. There was archery and horseback riding too among the other events. This winter camp is an annual event.

This past week, Shane and Nadine and family, Dallas and Chris and family, Duane and Donna flew to California to enjoy a “Lang Family Disney Vacation.” It was a great break with lots of fun, laughs, pictures and a trip to Universal Studios.

Close to a dozen people attended the crochet classes at Westwoods Ag. Center, where they enjoyed and learned the art of crochet. It is good to see this art, as well as knitting and quilting are still a part of community get-togethers and isn’t a lost art yet.
